Dear Communications Networks, Content and Technology (CNECT),
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
According to documents for which the Commission granter partial access under Regulation 1049/2001, the Commission terminated SMART-VEI by way of a letter dated 6/2/2009 and in accordance to Article II.38.1.b of the grant agreement.
Referring to the FP7-216480 SMART-VEI grant agreement that was financed by Community funds, I would be grateful if the Commission Services grant full access (save personal data of the staff of the beneficiaries) to the following documents:
1. The evaluation report drawn up at the stage of the proposal evaluation.
2. The letters DG INFSO addressed to the coordinator from 1/3/2008 (start of the project) until now; the term letter refers to documents bearing a hand-written signature of a DG INFSO official.
